    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    I'm shooting right now on a trip and will be editing heavily in LR every night and morning for the next 5 weeks. I shoot a lot of city scenic shots with parallel lines structures and lines both vertical and horizontal and am aware on every shot to keep my camera level and sensor level to avoid...

    NVMe SSD Speed w LR in Develop Module

    There were several recent threads where we talked about the behavior in LR where when we first upload a raw by clicking on it in the Develop Module, we see a slight lag that is the same no matter how fast the drive is that the raw is stored on. There is a huge speed and performance difference...

    LR & The Fastest SSD in the Consumer World

    There have been several threads lately that talk about using fast SSDs with LR. The one that got my attention the most (and probably Adobe's too), was the one about how LR develop module doesn't really load the raw file much (if any) faster from the fastest SSDs ( PCIe NVMe Gen4 M.2) connected...

    Old Dog Learning New Tricks

    I read the thread this morning about troubles syncing LR, LR Classic and storing your raw files in the cloud vs your own disks and it makes me think again about my future workflow and habits. I've been using LR Classic (or whatever desktop version they called it) almost daily for 12 years or...

    LR Use of GPU - Big Improvement on V11 of Classic.

    The LR 11 release notes say "If your GPU RAM is above 8 GB, GPU acceleration for export is enabled by default. However, if the GPU RAM is less than 8 GB, then select Edit > Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor > Custom > Use GPU for Export." So that means LR is using the GPU for...

    Previews - Let's Talk Preview Files.

    I think I have read everything I can find about Previews and I've just about decided I don't need them, despite every LR article that suggests how much they speed up work in the Library and now in even the Develop module. But my computer is fast and generates a 1:1 preview almost instantly...

    DNG Confusion from an Experienced User

    I have used LR almost daily for 12 years and am accustomed to working with Fuji, Canon and Nikon raw files which all have sidecars that I write all edits and metadata to (besides just to the catalog). I have shot the Leica Q2 a lot lately and just shot it every day for 7 weeks in Rome and...

    The Joy and Agony of Changing Drives (Data or Base OS Drive)

    I have been using LR for 12 years and I shoot a lot (and constantly). Every two years, I update my Windows laptop (always the best Dell XPS 15 4K touch screen as fully loaded as I can get it). Every 3 years, I build a new PC using the best Intel desktop chip and best NVidia GPU available at...

    Importing Images to the Master Home Studio Cat from the Road Laptop Cat

    I'm a travel photographer and what I do is travel and shoot. I have a powerful laptop that handles my GFX files and I often shoot thousands of shots on the road and work them nightly on my laptop. Before my flight or ride home, I copy the edited raw files and their sidecars onto an external...

    I'm Embarrassed to Ask....

    For years I have had an irritant on every version of LR on many different computers. I'm a landscape shooter and almost always have to adjust my horizon in post. When I put the mouse on the rotate slider, I expect to see that grid show so I can level the horizon. But often it doesn't show...

    Adobe Reports 16 bit on 14 bit GFX 100 Shots

    I'm a GFX medium format shooter but always shoot 14, not 16 bit. Yet LR, Bridge and PS all report 16 bits on the metadata - EXIF readouts when all of my shots are 14 bit. This has caused a lot of discussion on the Medium Format Forums in DPR and other places. Can anyone explain it? Thanks...

    Reloading Windows and Lightroom on new SSD and Images on a new 2nd SSD

    I built a top-end gaming rig 3 years ago to serve as my photography studio PC and am updating it this weekend with a new powerful Intel i9 10900K chip, Asus Hero 12 Motherboard, 64 GB Corsair 3600 Ram, and a new boot chip - the Seagate 2TB Firecuda 510 M.2 SSD. That will be my new boot drive...

    The Up-Down Slider Bar to the Far right in the Develop Module

    I'm a travel photographer and I shoot a lot. I edit Fuji RAF raw files (both MF and APSC) in LR constantly on the road and at home. At home I have a great pro 32 inch 4k photo editing monitor and life is good when you are on that beautiful screen with Adobe LR and a powerful gaming PC. But...

    Single Edit Applied to Large Number of Images

    I am embarrassed to ask this because it is basic and I am a very experienced LR user. I am a travel photographer and edit on the road nightly on my laptop. When I return home I copy the folder (which is full of hundreds or thousands of Fuji RAF files with their Sidecar Files) of that trip...

    Been a While Since I've Been On Here - Many Years of LR Daily Use, Thanks to You!

    Wow. It has been years (I think) since I was on the Lightroom Forum. I lost the link, just Googled it and hit this Lightroom Queen Forum. I guess the name changed. I remember that the Lightroom Queen and Jim W. helped me 8 years ago when I was working to learn LR. They were amazing, and I...

    Changing to a new PC after many years....

    I am building a new high-end 4K gaming rig (PC) that I will also use as my base studio for LR. On my current PC that I have been using for the last few years is my one catalog that links to over two TB of RAW images in a simple pictures folder that has hundreds of subfolders. Everything is...

    Using SP 4 (Laptop) on the Road - Exporting back to Master Catalog on Base Studio PC

    LR Gurus, I finally paid too much for the MS Surface Pro 4 (fully loaded with i7 6th Generation Skylake Processor and 16 GB RAM). It runs LR and PS faster than my 2 year old desktop on Windows 10. Kills it. So now I have a very light, portable LR road solution that is the size of a large...

    LR CC 2015 2.1 -- Bad Job Adobe

    Sorry -- I've been off-line on this great forum for a while so have not followed any problems posted earlier. I am a daily user of LR. Love the program. Addicted in fact. I was horrified and astoundingly disappointed when I loaded CC 2015 2 and immediately was confronted with the simplistic...

    Windows 10 Question on their Irritating "Photos" App - -Uninstall it?

    Gurus -- Any thoughts on this annoying "Photos" App we all get in Windows 10? Here is my concern. Undirected by me, that Photo app live tile in the start area started flipping through and displaying a few folders of JPEGs that I had for various reasons exported from LR and kept in folders. I...

    CC 2015 & LR 6 Utilize GPU in Dev Module. Makes me Slower

    I was excited to hear that the latest LR (CC 2015 & 6) for the first time has the ability to use the GPU in the Development Module. OpenGL has to be the latest so updating the driver is key, and I did that Day 1. I followed the advice on this forum and checked "Use Graphics Processor" in the...

    Navigating across iamge While in Adjustment Brush or Spot Reoval Brush

    I'm almost embarrassed to ask this because I'm wasting gurus' time with some simple question that I should already know, but for years while I'm in a RAW file do some basic developing, I zoom in and use the adjustment brush or healing brushes, etc., but then I need to navigate to a different...

    Bothersome Export Problem for the Past 4 Years

    For the past 4 to 5 years, and through several versions of LR, whenever I export a developed RAW as a small JPEG for email or posting I always get the error message, "Unable to Export. Internal error has occurred. Win 32 API Error 2. The system cannot find the file specified when calling...

    Am I Missing the Boat? I Still Rely on Pure Folders

    I am not a professional photographer but am as good or better (or at least more experienced) than many of the people who make that claim. I have been a photo enthusiast for 40 years and it is now my absolute main hobby that I am very devoted to and passionate about. I love LR. I love the...

    Switching LR use to Laptop for 5 Month Trip

    I do all my work on a home high-end very fast PC with a 32 inch screen, 32GB of RAM, 3 TB drive and killer graphics card. So I never experience LR performance issues that other people complain about constantly. I have about 2.5 TB of a lifetime of images all located on the internal drive and...

    Major LR Flaw. Will Not Filter out JPEGs on Import Costing Many Hours of Extra Work.

    I just returned from a trip in Argentina and Brazil. When shooting while traveling these days I leave the big L Lenses and 5DIII at home and carry the amazing Fuji XT-1 and three small XF Lenses. Anyway, that is another story, but I just returned with seven full 32 GB cards full of images. For...
